Random Thoughts: I enjoyed Dead Until Dark, but it didn’t wow me. Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while might remember that vampire stories don’t do much for me (Twilight? Eh, not so much—not my thing). The only exception I’ve found to this rule so far is the Queen Betsy series by Mary Janice Davidson (Undead and Unwed). These I find hysterical and have the second book in the series waiting to be read. But while I enjoyed Dead Until Dark, I’m don’t think I’m going to seek out the rest of this series at this time (it’s not like I don’t have anything else to read ;o)).
